Interior! / Re: Dual Goal Zero Yetis under the back seat!!
« Last post by jonhilde on October 18, 2017, 11:43:59 PM »
Hey Cole,

I'm also interested in how you integrated these units with the auxillary circuit in the van. Do you have them hooked up so the engine will charge the batteries while driving? Do you use them with solar panels? If so, do you just setup a panel facing the sun and run a cord to the yeti's or is there a more integrated setup somehow? Finally, have your redirected the 12v sockets in the van to connect with these guys (versus running on the aux battery under the driver seat?).

I'm asking because we picked up two of these units (Amazon ran a huge sale) and an Engel 12v fridge and am debating the best way to put all of the pieces together.

thanks!

here is my tarp solution for sunny california, 2 repurposed shower curtains provide nice privacy too (5-10 minute setup)

here is an awesome stop near palm springs california:

Sam's Family Spa Hot Water Resort

natural hot mineral springs pool and rv park. $55 for one rv/vehicle with 4 people including the use of the 6 pools.   so chill.

the day after we left on this trip, our home town of santa rosa, ca was hit with massive wildfires best described as firestorms.



i live in sebastopol on the far west side of this burn map, the winds are blowing 30mph towards the southeast today. we are so grateful for our emergency workers!

so our trip now will extend a few weeks through az and nm, then to the denver area for a month. the air quality back home isn't expected to be reasonable for another few weeks. i can work remotely so all is well.

im now loooking for housing in the louisville- gunbarrel area for my compact family of 3 (6y/o daughter) for october-november. also looking for location/help for van fixing (heater core r&r, lift and shocks). none of this is emergency repair, but it would make the 3000mile trip more cozy and smooth.



stopping in phoenix and santa fe w friends.

Hey Cole - I am putting in my Sirius XM receiver tonight.  I was curious how you were able to run it through to the exterior hood.  Any tips or tricks?
